Welcome to the Twincast Podcast Episode 101. Last episode was a celebration, but this episode it's back to business as usual. ScottyP hosts with Seibertron and Tigertrack jaw-jackin' on a Saturday afternoon about the most recent Transformers GENERATIONS toys and NEW comics releases, as well as recent club happenings. We find time to answer a listener question, and we’ll actually take time to discuss the other listener question within the thread for this episode (which you can participate in!).
Oh and one more thing, which is a very cool thing, Jon 3.0 and ScottyP were able to sit down with Garry Chalk... you know the guy who is quite famous for lending his voice to some of the more recent Optimusii in Transformers lore such as Optimus Primal from Beast Wars and Beast Machines, and Armada Optimus Prime (and more!). Tune in for "What’s up Chalk?" in that segment of the Twincast.
Episode #101 "Talkin’ ‘Bout My Generations" is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.
(Remember all times are approximate)
01:10 - 08:21
Have you found Generations Leader Class Jetfire yet? Photography guy Seibertron got his hands on it (and there's a gallery), as well as, Tigertrack. We spend a good 10 minutes talking up the first non-movie related leader class figure released in some time. Gosh he's chromey.
8:21: - 37:41
And the podcast crew talks about some of the smaller, but just as important Generations releases like Windblade, Crosscut, Jhiaxus, and Nightbeat. Conversation tends to get a little off track as we delve into things like eHobby exclusives, store exclusives, and the death of encore and G1 reissues.
And we mention Generations Cliffjumper and Gears a too.
1:08:46 - 1:19:21
Our group spends some time ‘ooo-ing’ and ‘aweing’ over the amazing work done by the creative members of the Seibertron community. We looked over some the ‘CREATIVE ROUNDUP’ offerings for that week and spend time giving love to some very talented folks, and their projects.

1:19:21 - 1:42:38
Here’s the chat with Garry Chalk. Jon 3.0 and ScottyP spend nice 15-20 minutes with the legendary voice. Can’t miss!
1:42:38:02 - 2:24:34 SPOILERS
We spend the next 40 minutes just breaking down the current comic offerings from IDW including Robots In Disguise 33, and More Than Meets The Eye 33. Be warned there are heavy plot and character spoilers that happen during the discussion. Spoilers
2:24:34 - 2:33:17
We spend some time on a listener question here as Seibertron is asked once more, “What is it that you hate about 3rd party figures?” The actual question just asked Seibs to share his ‘stance’ on third party figures (Seibertron does not HATE them). And we spend some time discussing the 3rd party offerings and whether HASBRO is going to be able to compete.
A second listener question was brought up, but we’re going to handle it in the discussion topic. Want to chime in with your thoughts? Answer the question below before, or after we do..."Could there be a discussion on the topic of obscure series or characters or series/ characters that could potentially become obscure [since series such as Rid/A/E/C are getting older]?"--you have a thought about this? Hit ‘discuss this’ and share below.
Finally we end with some bragging rights. Here’s a hint, it’s a lot of the new Generations figures, Club Chromedome, and more!!!!!!

Seibertron member Cr33per sent us a nice picture of a couple new legion class figures he found at Big Lots in Yakima, WA. Strafe is a redeco of Beast Hunters Windrazor while G2 Tank Megatron which looks like a re-release of the Universe 2.0 Legends Class Megatron perhaps maybe with a different shade of plastic and paint. Also included with this wave but not pictured is Grimlock which is a redeco of Beast Hunters Legion Rippersnapper. Grimlock sports a different deco than the Walmart exclusive figure that uses the same mold.

The twist this time is instead of Microns, the campaign items are Legendary Weapons (or trophies if you will) that Lockdown has collected aboard his ship. The campaign runs similar to past Takara Tomy campaigns. You buy 3,000 or more yen of Transformers in a certain store you get one of these weapons while supplies last. Here is the full rundown.
